Abstract

The phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genotypic characteristics of two recently described genera were compared. and (both type species of their respective genera) are similar in many phenotypic characteristics and in their fatty acid profiles, both have MK-7 as the major menaquinone and they have similar G+C contents. Comparison of the 16S rRNA gene sequence of CL-GR16 with those of 002-048 and 002-051 showed high degrees of sequence similarity, respectively 99.8 and 98.9 %. Phylogenetically, these three taxa are closely related and form a coherent cluster in the phylogenetic tree. The genomic relatedness of DSM 18252 with JCM 21759 and JCM 21760 is 51.7 and 35.6 %, respectively, which is well below the value of 70 % recommended for delineation of species. differs from in motility, the Voges–Proskauer test and acid production from and utilization of some carbohydrates. Based on these analyses, we conclude that should not be considered a separate genus and hence should be transferred to the genus as comb. nov., with the type strain CL-GR16 (=KCCM 42329 =DSM 18252).
